Emirates Post, the UAE’s official postal operator, has partnered with American company Dante Genomics to support the expansion of advanced genomic services across the country.
The partnership is in line with the UAE’s vision of making healthcare testing accessible to everyone and follows the recent launch of Dante Genomics’ office and operations in Dubai Silicon Oasis.
Genetic testing provides personalized information about one’s well-being to empower them to live a healthier lifestyle. It offers insights into a person’s genetic susceptibility to certain medical conditions, so that they can take action to lower their risk level and prevent diseases from manifesting later in life.
Under the agreement, Emirates Post will collect and drop off testing kits from Dante Labs to customers across the UAE, supporting the company through its large delivery network. Emirates Post will also designate customer happiness centers as a point of sale as well as a drop-off and collection point for the testing kits.
Dante Genomics offers advanced genetic testing and genomic solutions to medical professionals, clinics, researchers, and physicians worldwide. It was established in early 2022 by Dante Labs, a biotechnology company founded in 2016 and headquartered in New York.
